Teddy Bridgewater cleared to practice with Vikings

Report: Sam Bradford's knee injury could be career ending

Dr. Dan Cooper, who performed the surgery in September 2016 to fix torn ligaments in Bridgewater's left knee, cleared the quarterback to return to practice on Monday morning, and coach Mike Zimmer said Monday afternoon that Bridgewater will practice on Wednesday. "He's worked extremely hard - obviously not only him, the training staff, the doctors, [strength and conditioning coach] Mark Uyeyama, all those guys have done a great job with him, trying to rehab him and get him ready to practice". Thoughts of amputation were certainly not out of the question as the young Vikings quarterback was being transported to a nearby medical facility. Bridgewater has been out for more than a year after dislocating his left knee during a non-contact drill in practice on August 30, 2016.

Bridgewater's next step is to see how his knee responds to practice and rigorous activity.

Keenum has proven to be one of the NFL's more capable caddies, getting the Vikings through the past five games with an opportunity to win four of them.

Zimmer said Bradford is doing "pretty good" and wouldn't speculate on if he will practice this week.

"I think it means a lot to everybody".

The injury stopped Bridgewater's third pro season before it started and prompted Minnesota to acquire Sam Bradford via trade on September 3, 2016, just eight days before the season opened. While Sam Bradford continues to battle a knee injury, 2014 first-round pick Teddy Bridgewater, who has been sidelined for almost 14 months with a serious knee injury of his own, looks like he got medical clearance to start practicing this week. He could be activated from the PUP list and return to practice as soon as Wednesday.

"I don't make anything of it", Keenum said. I love this team, I love this offense, and I love the atmosphere.

The quarterback's rehabilitation, though, went well.
